October 2, 1935 - April 24, 2020
Gale, Marion (Gould) of Reading formerly of Revere on April 24, 2020 at the age of 84. Born in Winthrop on October 2, 1935 to the late George and Marion (Callahan) Gould. Devoted mother of Dyan Dal Pozzo and her husband Michael of Reading, Denise Gale of Everett, Debra Gale-Snow and her husband Jay of Key West FL, David Gale of Revere, and Doreen Joly and her husband Jim of Wakefield. Beloved sister of Joanne Biagi of VA, Eileen Gavin and her husband Bill of Winthrop, and the late Grace and Edward Waugh. Cherished grandmother of Matt, Melissa, Danielle, Ben, Gabby, and Alex. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Although her last few years were spent in Reading, Marion was the ultimate Revere Girl, born and raised. Known around town as the “Headband and Hat Lady” – she was the fashion-plate of Revere. Marion loved Revere and specifically, Revere Beach. Like an Official Historian, Marion would recount stories of her youth on Revere Beach – “The Nation’s First Public Beach” she would say. She would pine about days and nights spent at the Revere Beach Amusement Park, Dancing at Wonderland Ballroom, and all the hilarious stories of the time spent with her cousins. She loved Kelly’s Roast Beef and fulfilled a dream of living in a condo on Revere Beach. It was at her condo on Revere Beach that her Grandchildren will remember her best. She referred to them as her “Angels,” and when they were babies, they would go to the beach all day and then back to her condo for a “baby powder” bath. Her children will tell you they never had a lot, but their Mother never said “No” to friends coming over, and somehow she always had a “Magic can of Tuna” that could feed two to ten! Marion was the classic Irish-Catholic lassie and always maintained an incredibly strong faith and relationship with God. We know she is with the Lord and her loving family members in Heaven, and we will miss her until we are all together again.
